ABOUT THE COMPANY
The Fuente cigar factory in the Dominican Republic is usually the first thing that comes to mind when people discuss the J.C. Newman and Arturo Fuente partnership, but fate brought these two companies together in 1986 in the Cigar City, Tampa, Florida.
J.C. Newman Cigar Company is, famously, the last operating cigar factory in what was once known as Cigar City. The factory, built in 1910, was inhabited by the Newmans in the 1950’s and with the Newmans, came the cigar-rolling machines used in their Cleveland, Ohio factory.
Drew shares stories of his early trips to the Dominican Republic with his father, Eric, and grandfather, Stanford.
This cigar, inspired by an old cuban tradition of cigar rolling, is the newest addition to the J.C. Newman Cigar Co. portfolio of cigars.
Not only is The American hand rolled in the United States with American heirloom tobaccos, but all of the materials used to make and package The American come from the United States as well.
